I don't often buy clothing for my girls. It has to be a really, really good deal or an immediate dire need. I bought this one dress at Sears for $1.50 in their clearance section that I really love and put the bear cub in pretty much every time it comes out of the wash.
I decided to make her another one, but in patriotic colors. I started with the Ottobre pattern 4/2011-14 and made a few changes. I redrew the front yoke to be larger and split into two colors. I redrew the back to be split the same way between the two colors. I removed the large bow and added trim to the bottom of the dress all the way around. I added a belt and ties and a small bow. Here is what I ended up with.
